Saturday 9

(Link in meme-roll)
Working My Way Back to You (1966)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) We're celebrating the last holiday of summer with The Four Seasons. Which season is your favorite?
I love autumn. Most of the allergens start going away, and it's less humid (usually) and cools off at night.
2) Before they settled on The Four Seasons, they called themselves The Four Lovers, The Romans and The Village Voices. If you were/are in a band, please share the name. Or just make up a cool name for your pretend band.
Hmm, after some consideration, how about The 35th Seville. Nothing to do with car names or Spain, either.
3) Lead singer Frankie Valli has occasionally fudged the year of his birth. Have you ever lied about your age?
Nope. Never needed to. Never really wanted/want to.
4) Frankie Valli, Frank Sinatra, Jon Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen ... New Jersey has given us many music superstars. What is your state known for?
The one I grew up in is known for being among the fittest in the country. The one in which I currently live is known for corruption and corn and two very popular former Presidents.
5) In 1965, Frankie was arrested in Columbus, Ohio. But it wasn't his fault! The bandmate he trusted to pay the group's hotel bill neglected to do so. Tell us about a time when your trusting nature got you in trouble.
These days, I'm better about protecting myself, so I'm having a hard time coming up with anything recent that was traumatic. Being lied to pretty much daily for a couple of years by the person I used to trust the most in the world will do that to you.
6) Clint Eastwood directed the movie version of the Four Seasons biography, Jersey Boys. What's your favorite Clint Eastwood movie?
Because I'm weird, I'm going with Paint Your Wagon. His role is unexpected, and he sings!!
Since Labor Day is the holiday established to celebrate the American worker …

7) According to the U.S. Census, more and more Americans are working from home. Are you one of them?
Well, I do work at home sometimes, but I do have to show up at work for 40 hours a week to get paid. Beast works out of the house though, when he's not traveling.
8) Of those of us who work outside the home, 75% travel to work alone. 15% take public transportation and the remaining 10% carpool. How do you get to your job?
I drive, alone. Because local public transportation in this area is practically non-existent, there is basically no other option. At least Beast mostly just walks to work (from bedroom to office).
9) Do you have any big plans for this holiday weekend?
Nope. I'm hoping we get to see Sparky on Monday either here or at his place. We're waiting to hear. We are invited to a 50th anniversary celebration tomorrow as well.

Have a great get together at the 50th anno. I'm checking into the movie, "Paint your Wagon", too. Sounds like fun.

"I talk to the tress, but they don't listen to me ..." I saw Paint Your Wagon! I just forgot about it until your answer.

Good point about the allergies leaving when we get our frost in Autumn. Today was a bad allergy day for me.

Oh, I totally forgot Paint Your Wagon!

A 50th anniversary celebration sounds great! A wonderful thing to celebrate.
